No, I didn't make a typo in the title of this post and I didn't leave any words out either. It's the odd name of an article about composting on the new MSN Green website.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm very happy to see more and more green/environmental sites that talk about compost but this article just feels a little bit off. Like maybe it was run through a translator program or something. How to start a compost? Listen to this part too ...
Once again there's an confusing choice of words (composts), but I really don't agree with the constant attention part either. As I've written many times here on this blog, compost will happen all by itself without any help from you. Make a pile of leaves and grass and next year the bottom of that pile will be compost.
Composts need constant attention. Your pile should be wet, warm and mixed regularly. (This is why some bins come with a handle!) Like we said, the perfect recipe is hard to get right off the bat, but once you master it, you’ll never look back.
Now if you want it to happen quicker than it naturally does, then that's when your pile will need some attention. Your constant attention can be saved for your newborn baby or for your stock portfolio. Your compost bin will be just fine if you only check on it every couple of days.
Overall, MSN Green is worth checking out. But in the future, I'd like them to fix their translator or whatever caused the confusing jargon and perhaps they could make composting sound a little easier if they want people to actually try it.
